Have you ever found yourself accepting less than respectful, appropriate behavior from your lover?
Have you found yourself making excuses for the person when they treat you unkindly or with disrespect?
Why do you think you have accepted unloving treatment by the person who is supposed to love you the most?
Does your self esteem or lack thereof give the disrespectful partner license to abuse you?
If you find yourself feeling hurt, angry, puzzled, curious and confused about your lovers behavior toward you, I suggest you do some soul searching.
Ask yourself these questions:
1. Do I deserve disrespect?
2. Why have I allowed my lover to be verbally and emotionally abusive?
3. Have I overlooked unloving and cruel behavior just hoping it will change?
4. Do I blame myself when my partner mistreats me?
5. Do I hope for change only to consistently receive unloving gestures?
What might one choose to do if they find them self being disrespected?
Going to a counselor can help sort through confusing relationship issues.
